at home. he does not have the same kind of majority, came closer to losing than people thought he would. obama was reelected despite his attempts to prevent that. so, they both have an interest in getting something done. i think it is highly remote that anything will get done. the neighborhood has only gotten more dangerous. >> colby king? >> i thought it was important that he made the trip. ultimately, if there is going to be peace in the area it will have to come from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no longer number one on president obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution
historic cases this weani s. president obama supporting same-sex marriage issued a brief with the court calling doma constitutional. >> it's not their rule to decide what's constitutional. doma was a law passed by the house and senate and signed into law by president clinton. and in our system of government, the administration doesn't get to decide what's constitutional. the supreme court does. >> and it will. starting tuesday. a constitutional law expert, nyu, and the president of founder of freedom and the right leaning heritage foundation. thank you to all of you for being here. folks who haven't followed this case as closely, how did we get here and why of these two cases being heard so close together? >> beginning with the second question, serendipity they're being heard together. winded they're way up through separate passes of the country to converge at the supreme court. the first case, perry case heard tuesday is a prop 8 case a state restriction on same-sex marriage. whereas the case herd wednesday, the defense of marriage act, whether or not federal benefits vts to be afforde

's going to change. if you look at the exit polls that i alluded to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said they were for same-sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark pryor of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position, and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from self-identified evangelicals. >> but ironically, again, romney's data analyst suggests that the republicans and independents who voted for the president, who, by the way, won, actually overwhelmingly support marriage quality, and so this is a growing issu
in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama's doctrine. he is going to be looking for very much multinational-type force. he is going to the u.n. he is looking for the french to take a lot of the lead. he is going to be -- but nobody, even with both syria and with iran, there is no nobody particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't believe that this president really is willing to follow through on the use of force because they think that his head is still looking back at iraq. someone who spoke to him recently told me a few days ago that he has said about syria, words to the effect of "i know how i get in. tell me how i get out. i don't know how to get out." he is still thinking of what we got into unexpectedly in iraq, the unintended consequences of american action. it's a

with me, they are not doing this." but we all know the democrats are doing the same thing. they are telling people lies, not telling the truth. obama, his incompetence as a president, he blames -- this is why i'm not getting things done. he's supposed to be a leader of the people. the news media let's everything go, doesn't -- you know, obama is doing a great job and everything else. the american public knows it is not true. host: jim, thank you for the call. is that tactic different from president obama, president reagan, or president bush? guest: no. all presidents do that. the one point i totally agree with is that the press generally let's presidents say what they want to say and then challenges it in a different way. i mean, you get use today a president's normal line. this president blames the republicans, that's true. ok. so what? he blames the republicans. the republicans in fact are in one house of congress, and they are not letting him get anything done. that's true. he plames them. who is listening? he hopes the public is. it doesn't necessarily resonate with th
to date on that? it's an extraordinary experience. see the freedom ride occurred in 1961, the same year that president barack obama was born. [applause] in 1961, my people could not board a greyhound bus. leaving washington d.c. traveling to virginia, north carolina, south carolina georgia alabama and mississippi on our way to new orleans with the probability of being arrested or jailed and that is what happened i was selected as one of the original freedom riders. we met in washington d.c. on may may 1, 1961. i was 21 years old and i was a few pounds lighter then. we went through a period of training orientation and i will never forget it. on may 3, 1961 we all went down to a chinese restaurant in washington d.c.. i had grown up in rural alabama and attended school in nashville tennessee. i never had chinese food, never been to a chinese restaurant and that night we had a wonderful meal. someone said you should eat well because this may be like the last supper. the next day on may 4, 1961 half of the group boarded a greyhound bus and the other half a trailways bus. the first incident o

california voters chose president barack obama and passed proposition 8. stripping same sex california couples of their freedom to marry. which is what made this moment so extraordinary. president obama who just a few months before had articulated his own support for marriage equality stood on the steps of the capitol immediately after taking the oath of office for the second time and articulated that lbgt rights are part of the freedom and fairness in america. >> we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through selma and stone wall. >>> so here in nerdland with us to mark this moment in the struggle is california congresswoman and senior democratic whip, barbara lee. alongside the great kenji yoshi yoshino, professor at new york's university law school. lisa dug began, professor of cultural and social analysis. darlene nipper, executive director of the national gay and lesbian task force. thank you for being here. where are we in this moment? what is this moment, d

these one size fits all solutions don't work. that's what we've seen with obama care and a lot of things. this is for one college and should be emulated if possible because it's working there. >> yes. and other schools can come up with other ways to do t same thing. one of the things as john touched on with the government subsidies it's bloated administrative costs which is why the sticker price for tuition is going up at four times the rate of inflation. that's got to be stopped. this is one way. bless them. you'll see more of this in the future, three years insteadf four years and more on line. the bloat is going one way or the other. >> isn't this better than another taxpayer bailout? >> i say no, don't cut off tuition lending, there isn't enough money in the system to make every dollar of financial aid take the form of a grant. it can't work that way. die like steve's idea that incentives should be realigned. i would like to see every college co-sign any dollar of any loan from the federal taxpayer. >> good luck on that. morgan, is this a good idea? >> i do. i think it's innovative.
and actually read the presidential debate with john mccain over and over again, obama promised to make a campaign speech does the same thing. i have some new proposals, but i'm going to more than offset them by other cuts and he promised a smaller government that we have great then. now when we got to the week or two after the election we start talking about the stimulus. it will be for one, maybe two years. we had a 21% increase during the first years of the obama administration over and above the solution. that dollar increase in spending adjusted for inflation is argentinian priest standing we had during world war ii, which is pretty phenomenal when you think about how much the country no place to go and fight world war ii there. this is larger for inflation. rather than the stimulus lasting for almost a couple years, not only can't we cut spending, but we can even slow the growth of spending or have a detrimental effect on the economy. obviously a shot newsome grassed a minute ago that indicated around economic growth is it going too well. the president often has made recommendatio

in the same way. what do you mean? >> i think that's right. as you mentioned the obama stimulus did pour about $150 billion into our infrastructure and its build america bonds was a hidden stimulus inside the stimulus put in another $180 billion. that's a start. that's how you start to create the sort of strong infrastructure that makes people want to make our economy more competitive and make people want to invest in us. you have to ask what the goal is. it's not just to build more roads or sewers, you want to get people places. as opposed to just building roads. sometimes that involves more infrastructure. sometimes it involves more tell acommuting. sometimes it involves smarter infrastructure that's going to tell people where to go so they're not in as much traffic. >> the goal is a good standard of living and the idea that businesses will invest and create jobs? if you have a good standard of living, it makes companies want to hire people. people want to live in these places and that's largely what it does. >> exactly. you want good mobility to get to work so you can get around. you want g

. she was a big player on the global stage. president obama knew when he was elected that he wasn't going to be able to go around the world and make america's case on the same basis because he would be busy at home with economy. it was a clear reason and one of the many reasons why he chose her as suggested it because he knew she could do that for him on a daily basis in all, around the world. that's what i think that she would bring to him and accurate reading of where things stood. what she could deliver to him in terms of moving forward, where the players were when it comes to libya, for example. deliver to him what was needed for him to make the decision. she lost some battles but she certainly influenced a lot of decisions. libya being one of them. and asia definitely. >> host: we would get to libya next. it was a very interesting scenario in what happened there. but just one last question on the israeli-palestinian conflict. i was covering aipac 210100 clinton spoke at the conference. she mentioned at the time something that i thought was interesting. she said that far-flung
